Does the improbability of extra-terrestrial life support more the Christian conception of God than the Vedic conception?

by Chaitanya Charan dasJanuary 6, 2015

From Dr Roy:

Christians hold that life exists only on earth, whereas Vedas hold that life exists on other planets. So how can we use as evidence for God’s existence the scientific inference that life on other planets is improbable, as the below widely read article mentions?

    our scriptures declares that life also exist in the various planets like sun and moon also . but when people landed on moon ,they didn’t saw any life ,especially those higher conscious beings ,as scriptures mentions like chandra devata (presiding deity ),in saturn (shani devata) ,in sun (surya devata) ,and their many attendants .but scriptures do declare ,they exist ,that means ,they live in different dimension of the universe ,that we can’t perceive with our eyes. our scriptures declare mount meru height to be very large ,but can we see it right now ,no. so definitely scriptures are pointing to some higher dimensions of universe ,pervaded by some higher beings ,having consciousness at the different level ,that what we have on earth . so we can’t see them ,but that doesn’t mean that ,they doesn’t exist at all .some scientist have talked about rare earth theory ,showing how the rare the possibility of life is ,on earth .but if one accepts ,god as the intelligent designer ,then every planet ,can well become the rare place to leave on .for eg ,if we see nicely designed mercedes car ,and if someone says, it is very very rare ,that these car has been created by chance by the nature, possibility for all the components ,to be so much perfectly situated in the car in their proper place is very rare . but if one sees the factory ,there will be many more such so called rare cars ,so then probability of rarity will decrease ,for now ,he will understand ,that it is not by chance ,but some intelligent designer has manufactured it .

    so life do exist in every planets ,but our man-made technology will not be able to perceive it ,this is my understanding .
